The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    найкращий вид на Париж! 100% варто відвідати. раджу дочекатися заходу сонця та споглядати за тим, як вмикається все місто та Ейфелева вежа.

    Monumento majestuoso, uno de los auténticos iconos de París. La experiencia de recorrer todos los Campos Elíseos con el Arco visible al fondo buena parte del trayecto es una experiencia extraordinaria

    Sadece Fransızların anıta çıkabilmeleri bana biraz ayrımcılık gibi geldi :)

    Make sure you take the underground passageway near near Avenue des Champs-Élysées! Do not attempt to run across the roundabout.

    Take stairs if you can. If traveling with those who can't, they do have lift that will take you almost to top. You will need to climb last approx 40 stairs. Views are worth it!

    Preparado pra subir escadas? Ótimo lugar pra ver a cidade do alto e admirar suas ruas organizadas e planejadas. Procure seu sobrenome dentre nomes dos generais no Arco do Triunfo e tire uma selfie.
